Krug

Founded in 1843 by Johann-Joseph Krug, this family-run house has earned a legendary reputation for its relentless pursuit of excellence.

The story is one of dedication to the art of Champagne. Johann-Joseph Krug, originally from Mainz, Germany, moved to Reims, France, to pursue his dream of creating an exceptional Champagne. He founded his own house, and since then, six generations have succeeded each other at the head of the company, each bringing their unique expertise.

The Domaine is located in Reims, in the heart of the Champagne, and its vineyards cover around 20 hectares. What sets the house apart is its commitment to creating prestigious Champagnes using artisanal winemaking methods and an uncompromising approach to quality. The vineyards are located in the region's Grands Crus, providing grapes of the highest quality for the production of their cuvées.

In contrast to many Champagne houses that focus on the consistency of one cuvée style, Krug is famous for its bold blending of different harvest years and grape varieties. Each cuvée is crafted from over 120 wines from Réserve, giving each bottle exceptional complexity and richness.

The art of aging is also essential at Krug. All cuvées spend considerable time in the cellar, well beyond legal requirements, allowing Champagnes to develop a unique depth and intensity. It's this attention to detail and respect for time that makes the house one of the most respected names in Champagne.

Among the iconic cuvées is the "Krug Grande Cuvée", a Champagne not Millésimé that embodies the very essence of the art of blending. The "Krug Clos du Mesnil" is an exceptional single-varietal cuvée made from Chardonnay from a single enclosed vineyard.

The Domaine has received numerous accolades and distinctions over the years, including the status of "Maison de Champagne du Siècle" awarded by the Guide Bettane et Desseauve in 2019. Each bottle is a work of art in itself, an expression of the family's commitment to perfection.
